Though its official launch date remains unknown for now, German newspaper giant Bild has slipped a supposed launch date for the machine into a wider story about the device.
The paper claims that the 3DS will launch in Japan on November 11th and then in Europe in spring 2011. A price of €200 is given, which in direct terms translates to around £170.
It also lists the apparent launch titles – Mario Kart 3D, Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle and, surprisingly, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.
The dates roughly fit in with what has been previously suggested, though their accuracy remains a complete mystery for now.
No information is given for the North American market.
